You can install VCStarter v1.7 BETA (more info at vietcong.info ), apply patch from 39057 or use Wine-Staging. See the corresponding bug report ( 9337 ) for more details.
Check your maps folder for number of downloaded maps. Game usually won't start when the maps folder contains more than about 500 maps (1000 files, since every map consists of two files).
Moving some of the maps into another folder (or deleting them) is the only working solution.

You can also use online server list at vietcong1.eu.
Install directplay using winetricks:
See the corresponding bug report ( 33295 ) for more details. With that the (lib32-)gnutls library might be required to run the game.
